Cartons on pallets, example 2

While the simple wooden frame made from two upright boards and squared lumber crosspieces does secure the left-hand pallets and the protects the already damaged cartons, it is still in need of modification. As shown, the upper cross brace is applying a point load on the container side wall (a) and the single board on the pallet (b).

It is better to use two frames to provide the overall bracing and to modify the structure by choosing taller uprights (1). The wooden crosspieces (2) are not resting on top of the uprights, but against them, so resulting in better pressure distribution. Wooden members (3) nailed underneath hold the structure together and prevent the upper cross braces from slipping down.
